View Full Version : Best place to buy Coils, Fuel Filters, and Injectors

05-11-2005, 02:44 PM
Hey, while diagnosing why my cylinder #2 was misfiring (which turned out to be the ignition control module), I noticed that my coils are in pretty rough shape. So now I'm planning to replace all my coils and plugs. While I'm at it, I'm also looking to do my fuel filter and perhaps injectors.

My question is, where is the best (cheapest) place to get coil packs and fuel filters? I need them for the AEB engine. If anyone has any good places to buy quality fuel injectors in the 310cc output, let me know as well. I did some searching and no one had any clear answers.

Its not an immediate problem, so I'm looking to order off the net for the best price.

Buy your coil packs at a VW dealership. It is always cheaper.

Ummm... yeah... if you say so....

if you need to get them locally from a dealer, the dude is right. Don't be a snob. It's the same part from the same supplier for the same application.

Check to see if you qualify for a coilpack recall before you fork out your own cash to replace them.

They didn't offer a recall until after the AEB engine. If I needed one in a hurry, I probably would go with the dealer. As it is, just a quick search on the web saves me $40+ between all four. Even the dealer needed 3-5 days to get 4 coils in stock. I was just curious to see if there were any smokin deals out on the web.

has anyone done or heard of people putting in those upgraded plasma coils.... they run like $500 for the set.... are they really worth the price or are the stock ones good enough....

I've heard of people running 450-500hp applications with no problems from their stock coils. I get the feeling its one of those luck things. If they're going to go out, they're going to go out, it doesn't matter how much power you're running. (Especially since they don't get affected by power, they put out the same current) I'd say its not worth it. If you want good, solid spark, just choose the right plugs. I'd say copper and just change out the $10 plugs on a regular basis (every 3-4000 miles).

aeb coils are usually more right?
ecs even has them for 50 a pop right.

You can run the other coils in it, they just don't bolt to the head.

05-13-2005, 11:10 AM
if they don't bolt to the head, how do you keep them on? And yeah, AEB coils are 50-70 rather than the cheaper coils you find on later engines.

05-13-2005, 01:05 PM
Just like the newer ones do, they just stick on.

If you look at the later model 1.8t cars, the cover is drilled and tapped for the AEB Coils, they just use the later-style (cheaper) coils that don't bolt down.

They just "stick" to the plug...

Nifty... maybe thats my solution to save a few bucks. [:D]
